too much activity too soon


I am 57 yrs old & I had a vaginal hysterectomy on Sept 5. My uterus was 3x normal size filled with fibroids. A couple years ago I had one ovary removed due to pre cancerous polyps. The Dr left one ovary as I did not want to go right into menopause. I still have one ovary.

I am normally a very active person. Last night after a dinner out, my husband took us to our favorite nite spot & I was feeling so good I danced. I did not think I overdid it but today I felt lousy.

My belly seems to be more swollen but not really sore.

Can too much activity too soon cause internal bleeding?

I also had my bladder webbed back in place & rectocele done.

I spent over one week in bed & have really been careful not to do too much.

I just hope I did not do any damage to myself!

Thanks for your imput!

too much activity too soon

I would have to say I couldn't dance right now if someone paid me $1,000.

I am 29 and my hyster. info is down below at the bottom of this post. I will tell ya that I went in 9.10.07 and tomorrow will be 2 weeks (Woohah!), you went a week before me so I don't know if the difference in one week would be that much. Today I am not doing so well and have been here all day and so I have energy and my husband wants to go to sleep already... (PC is next to bed so I have easy access to the net.) I am so glad that you had a good time, you deserve it. I will tell you that I am getting restless now to get back in the meat of life, but if I try too much too early other sisters here have warned about improper healing, which is now your concern also. Are you bleeding? Have you used pain meds to assist the discomfort? If you still feel like your not up to par tomorrow, I would encourage you to call you GYN to run it by them. I hope this helped and I can't wait to shake my $Money-Maker$... I'm jealous but I would look more like a fish out of water at this point on my path tp recovery...

I think you just over did it. Unless you were breakdancing of course! Take the day and relax, kick your feet up. Drink plenty of water, all that "fresh home from the hospital" stuff. I find that when I over due it I get extra puffy the next day and generally feel poopy. If you are concerned though, call the doc, that's what they are there for.
